Maintainer introduces the H8524 service crane

5/21/19

Maintainer Corporation of Iowa Inc. (Sheldon, Iowa) announced the addition of a new hydraulic crane with maximum lift capacity of 8,500 pounds to its innovative line of work truck cranes. The new H8524 telescopic crane has a reach of 24 feet, six inches.

“This is the second 8500-pound crane we have released this year,” said Tom Wibben, Director of Sales & Service for Maintainer. “The H8530 released in March helped fill the gap between our 10,000 and 7,000-pound cranes. Now this new H8524 will allow customers to conserve more payload on a Class-6 chassis as well as some of the new 2020 commercial chassis models coming soon.”

The new crane touts a 52,500 foot*pound crane rating and a boom-mounted planetary winch. It is recommended that the crane be mounted on a chassis with a minimum gross vehicle weight (GVW) of 22,000 pounds. A dual-outrigger package is available in conjunction with the H8524 for greater stability.

The H8524 also features Advanced Crane Control 2.0. The upgraded safety and performance features in ACC 2.0 include better visibility of lifting loads and error codes if instability with a lift is detected. The proportional wireless remote integrates with our new switch panel assembly using a CAN System to improve operator efficiency.

The Model H8524 also boasts the following features:

  • Low profile boom - no need for flip sheave
  • Tall & Short Tower configurations
  • Total operational range 91° (-13° to +78°)
  • OSHA 1910.180/ANSI B30.5 compliant
  • Closed-center/load sensing hydraulic system (open center optional)
  • 615° of boom rotation
